Georgia native and avid hunter and fisherman Jeff Foxworthy is lending his enthusiasm for the outdoors and his best-selling quick wit in support of an important American tradition.
In celebration of a passion for the outdoors that he shares with 64 million other Americans, Foxworthy has been chosen as honorary chairman for the 2007 National Hunting and Fishing (NHF) day.
Gov. Sonny Perdue recently signed a proclamation in honor of the conservation efforts led by America’s hunters and anglers, recognizing Sept. 22 as NHF day in Georgia.
The Georgia Department of Natural Resources, Wildlife Resources Division extends an invitation to the public to participate in one of the many special events being held across the state in recognition of this special day.
Events that will be offered in Georgia include six Outdoor Adventure Days in addition to kid’s fishing events and sight-in days.
In addition to these events, a free fishing day is offered to Georgia residents.
Residents do not need a fishing license or a trout license to fish on any public waters in the state, including lakes, streams, ponds and public fishing areas.
